Australian High Commissioner Scott Ryan & New Zealand High Commissioner Martin Harvey would like to invite members of the public to attend the 2023 #AnzacDay commemorative service in Ottawa to remember and honour all Australians, New Zealanders and those who served by their side. Due to limited capacity, spaces are on a first-come first-served basis. Please be sure to RSVP by 19 April here:



We are pleased to advise that in 2023 the Canadian Forces College will return to hosting a modest ANZAC Day Service which is open to the public. The College is located at 215 Yonge Blvd North York, although the main entrance off Sandringham Drive.  Attendees are advised to arrive no later than 0600h for a 0615h start and you will be required to sign in with the Commissionaires who will direct you to the Service location. The Service will run for approximately 45 mins, after which those in attendance will be invited to attend a ‘gunfire breakfast’ in the Armor Heights’ Officers Mess.  An opportunity will be provided for the laying of wreaths for those who wish to do so. Dress for the ANZAC Day Service is tunic with full size medals for serving members or smart/business attire.  Please consider bringing an umbrella in the case of inclement weather.
